Nijmegen Syndrome

  • Chrzanowska K H, Kleijer W J, Krajewska-Walasek M, Bialecka M, Gutkowska A, Goryluk-Kozakiewicz B, Michalkiewicz J, Stachowski J, Gregorek H, Lyson-Wojciechowska G, Janowicz W, Jozwiak S.: Eleven Polish patients with microcephaly, immunodeficiency, and chromosomal instability: The Nijmegen breakage syndrome. AJMG 57:462-471, 1995. [PubMed: 7545870]
    Chromosomal abnormalities were inv(7)(p13q34), t(7;14)(q34;q11), t(7;14)(p13;q11), t(7;7)(p13;q34), tan(14;14)(q11;q32).

    The authors present an argument that the patient of Woods et al (1995) may have NBS.

    The NBS gene at 8q21 comprises 50kb and encodes a protein of 754 amino acids.
    Five independent families are reported.
    The main manifestations inculde microcephaly, short stature, a "bird-like" face, immunological defects involving both the humoral and the cellular system.

    P.M. a boy born in May 1997.
    The patient is affected with a disorder characterized by developmental defects, NBS bird-like face, immunodeficiency, chromosome instability and radiosensitivity, but with normal cellular levels of nibrin, hMre11 and rad50, and no mutations in the NBS1, LIG4 and XRCC4 genes.
    The patient, a 2 year old, was of Moroccon ancestry.
